In accordance with Part 211 of Title 49 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), this document provides the public notice that by a document dated June 15, 2012, the Minnesota Northern Railroad (MNN) has petitioned the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) for an extension of Waiver Docket Number FRA-2001-10214.
Specifically, MNN seeks to extend a waiver for Caboose MNN 019 from 49 CFR 223.13—Requirements for existing cabooses, which requires safety glazing for existing cabooses.
MNN states that the circumstances at the time of the original waiver have not changed. The caboose is still only used on special occasions as an office car for officials and private persons for railroad business purposes.
A copy of the petition, as well as any written communications concerning the petition, is available for review online at www.regulations.gov and in person at the U.S. Department of Transportation's (DOT) Docket Operations Facility, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE., W12-140, Washington, DC 20590.
